E078192 Club detail

E078192 club, wood, northern New South Wales, southern Queensland, Australia.

This wooden club is from northern New South Wales or southern Queensland, Australia. The club is carved from a single piece of wood. It has a straight handle with a pointed base. The diameter of the club increases towards the top to form the club's head. The head then tapers to a point. Towards the base, hatched incisions around the circumference of the club form a grip. The club was collected by Alexander Morrison in the late 19th or early 20th Century. It was acquired by the Australian Museum in 1982.
